'Dance for Life' draws stars, crowd and money for a cause (GALLERY)

Attendees said they enjoyed the spectacle.

"I am having so much fun," DeFuniak Springs resident Linda Whatley said. "I dance at the house in front of a mirror sometimes. My mother, when I was small, used to pull me up to dance. She said, 'If you're feeling blue, get up and dance.' She was my inspiration for coming...."

Crestview resident Kate Snow attended with her children, Lorelai, 10, and Sevryn, 14, and her mother, Carol Melcher, who was visiting from Michigan.

Snow said she has taken all three to her dance lessons.

"I didn't know I could dance," Sevryn said. "I like it, I guess."

"It's fun!" Melcher said. "Aaron was my instructor. He makes it so easy."

As Act 2 revved into gear with Dovolani and Hightower's spirited jitterbug to "Shout!," eight Crestview High Ballroom Dance Club members joined the backstage throng in preparation for their performance.
